Sariraka-Catussutri-Vicara of Bellankonda Ramarayakavi

R. Balasubramanian (Author)

Ramarayakavi (1875-1914) belongs to the group of illustrious commentators on the basic texts and commentaries on the basic texts and commentaries on Advaita Vedanta. Though he lived only for thirty-nine years, his writings, which are available to us, are very impressive. Since his writings are lucid and profound, closely following the writings of Adi Sankara, he has been revered as “Abhinava Sankara”. It may be noted that his writings are helpful not only to the beginners, but also to scholars deeply immersed in the classical texts to Advaita Vedanta. This volume, Sariraka-catussutri-vicara by Ramarayakavi, brings out the central ideas of the first four sutras of the Brahma-sutra, also known as Sariraka-sutra, on the basis of Sankara’s commentary. It is a good introduction to the study of Sankara’s entire commentary on the Brahma-sutra. The question-answer method in the dialogue form which Ramarayakavi adopts in this book makes it interesting. The major part of this book is devoted to answering the question why inquiry into Brahman, which means inquiry into the inward Self of every one of us, is necessary. If the proper study of mankind is man, then no other problem is so important as this one, which engages the attention of Ramarayakavi.
